 Libba Bray writes about the process of turning her novel, Beauty Queens, which re-imagined Lord of the Flies among teen beauty contestants, into a film.  “But try, if you will, to imagine me with lasers coming out of my eyes while my internal organs became as the fires of Mordor. They didn’t get it. And they were legit trying to get it, which made it doubly painful. It wasn’t laziness; it was a fundamental tone deafness. An inability to comprehend and relate to women as real people.”
